The present position is governed by an exchange of Notes between the Spanish and British Governments of 1894, by virtue of which the products and manufactures of the United Kingdom enjoy the lower rates of the second column of the Spanish tariff as well as any reduction of those rates which may be granted by Spain to other European States by treaty. Negotiations are now in progress with the Spanish Government for the conclusion of a commercial treaty. It is not possible at this moment to forecast the date when such treaty may come into force.
